Two workers came by a couple of weeks ago. They asked a bunch of questions about our neighbors. They were told to go knock on the doors. We gave them our form with the 10 questions filled out. They took it, made several calls to HQ, then laughed, and as they were leaving said that this wasn't their neighborhood anyway! So am I gonna get counted? I do not have the big picture that this census is going to be valid.

I never had anyone come here to my home. I had a note in the door once that someone visited but I was out. I never had a return visit. I guess we won't be counted in Hermon Hill

Same here. I got the forms at my PMB and completed them. No visitor. What do I do with the forms?

The census office just called us. As background, we had only answered the first 10 questions, and when the census taker came in person in early April, we told him that's all we were going to answer.

Here's how today's phone conversation went:

Census: You answered some questions, but not all of them. Could you take a few minutes to answer the rest of them?
Us: We answered the questions which we felt were required.
Census: Some answers were blank. Could we ask you to answer those?
Us: No, we feel they're an invasion of privacy.
Census: So do you feel that if I ask you where you were born, that's an invasion of privacy?
Us: The problem is, if we answer one question, then we feel we have to answer all of them, and some of them we feel are an invasion of privacy, so we only answered the questions found on the national census form.
Census: So are you refusing again to answer the questions?
Us: Yes.
Census: OK, thank you.

Is there any way to contact the VI Census people?

I received my packet at my PMB and live in an apartment complex. If they visit my PMB, they will be at Mailboxes & More.

I've had no indication that they will visit my apartment.

As a follow-up: I had a phone call like STXBob's, so I know my form ended up somewhere. She made one attempt to have me "finish" the form. When I said "I did finish it", she said, "Thank you for your time." Edward, ours came through the PO, but they still want to count you at your home, as I understand.
